And since the “what font is this?” question comes up a lot, people should also check out What the Font.

Here is an excellent site for image tutorials and designs.

I founded this site and sold a few months ago :slight_smile:

Since this questions comes up every now and then, I thought I’d post a link to a valuable thread about how to identify fonts:

How to know the name of a graphic font?

That’s too cluttered!

Here’s the list of [B]free graphic programs[/B]: GIMP, Maya personal, Blender 3D, IrfanView image converter, free templates and such.

^ I’ve also listed some free graphic programs in this post - here:

Irfan View

Graphic editors (raster):
GimpShop (Gimp with Photoshop-like GUI)
